TIPS FOR THE BEST ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS
- Use fresh brussels sprouts. Using fresh brussels sprouts that have bright green heads, are firm and heavy for their size, and have leaves that are tightly packed will ensure that you get the best flavor in this dish.
- Remove the stem and outer leaves. These parts of the brussels sprouts are the least flavorful, and the leaves are often wilted and discolored. Using the inner leaves will make for a more flavorful dish.
- Thoroughly coat the brussels sprouts with spices. Using your hands is the best way to make sure the butter and spices coat all the brussels sprouts evenly before roasting. Doing this ensures that the flavors are evenly distributed for the best results.
